Auto A/C Service in the Austin Area

Auto A/C system issues can appear out of nowhere. And with almost infinite choices for auto A/C service, locating the best service center can be difficult. If you wish to stay cool behind the wheel of your car or truck, we’ve got you covered with some pointers, especially in case you ever have to search for vehicle A/C repairs.

Where To Go For Automotive A/C Repair?

Like the majority of car repairs, you generally have 3 choices when it pertains to repairing your vehicle’s air conditioner system: Do-It-Yourself, an independent repair shop, or an auto dealer. Is one any better than the rest? Let’s explore each alternative and see.

DIY AC Repair

DIY freon recharge kits abound. Unfortunately, they only address one particular problem, however, and may miss something more serious. Recharging leaked freon may offer you temporary relief but subjects the atmosphere to dangerous chemicals when the system leaks freon once more. This option is the riskiest as the majority of us aren’t licensed AC repair specialists. You risk throwing away money on an inadequate ‘repair’ and damaging the atmosphere.

Independent A/C Service Shop

Independent repair shops are a step up from DIY as they have the knowledge and (likely) the tools needed for a successful car air conditioning repair. While the service technicians will have a better opportunity of effectively detecting the trouble with your car’s A/C, they might not have all the specialized tools needed to efficiently fix it. Independent service centers are developed to service many different brands of cars, not necessarily your vehicle specifically.

AC Repair at the Dealership

Your local dealer is absolutely the best alternative when dealing with anything on your car and that includes having your vehicle air conditioning fixed. The dealer service technicians are especially trained on your car and have access to any kind of specialized devices and manufacturer replacement parts that may be required to effectively fix your car’s air conditioning issue.

All 3 options have their merits when it involves repairing your car’s air conditioning, but here at Kia of South Austin, we have the right devices to properly identify your problem and repair it correctly.

How Much is an Air Conditioning Diagnostic?

The initial component of repairing your car’s air conditioning is recognizing what’s broken. This means beyond noticing that the vehicle’s AC unit doesn’t blow cold any longer. The cost of an air conditioning analysis can differ greatly depending on just how extensive the diagnostic test is. Some shops like the car parts store or independent service centers may just have the ability to evaluate for freon leaks while we have the specific equipment required to properly fix your car’s air conditioning problem. We comprehend that one size doesn’t fit all and we will certainly customize the AC diagnostics test for your certain requirements. Be sure to call us for an individualized quote on your car.

What Causes Auto Air Conditioner Units to Stop Functioning?

Inevitably of your automobile’s air conditioner system stopped working as a result of a leak or a part failing, it should only rarely require a ‘recharge’. Air conditioning units are cooled down by freon, a chemical that can be damaging to the atmosphere. So, while you may be most worried about your loss of cold air, a damaged vehicle air conditioning system might be damaging to the environment and needs to be evaluated promptly.

It was a good experience. We had to wait for our vehicle while it was getting services. They finished in about 30 minutes. The service tech was running a little late because of flooding. They still got it done in about 30 minutes. I know the coronavirus has changed things. There were no complimentary food items, but they did have a vending machine.

I worked with Esteban Alanis who was very knowledgeable and understood I needed to work within a certain budget. He went the extra mile (no pun intended!) and was even willing to talk to a family member of mine on the phone who had some extra questions. I felt comfortable trusting him and overall had a great experience with Kia of South Austin.
